Eight-year-old Isla McIntosh shows off her finds to Austin Police Officer Kris Stein as she took part in Saturday’s Heroes and Helpers program at Target. The Target program pairs children with police officers so they can go Christmas shopping with a $50 gift card. There were 21 kids this year that got the opportunity to shop with Austin Police officers.
